In the same price bracket, my budget is very low
just need a basic GYW, nothing fanciful

In that case, support local brands lah.

Sad that atelier llyr seems to have paused work for the time being. After many wears, I actually prefer their shoes over EEA.

Their site still has old stock for really cheap. You might want to check if they have something you like in your size.

You can take a look at the gyw offerings at Robinsons too. I didn’t really like them but at least we have options to see in person. The other way to go is with meermin, but their shipping fee will eat into your budget and their QC is a bit sketchy so there are hits and misses.

Can't find the one I'm looking for at atelier

Found my wholecut oxfords at meermin but Meermin seems to only have domestic USA shipping, think it requires a 3rd party forwarder? Correct me if I'm wrong

I'll head over to Robinsons, any particular brand to watch out for?

I believe they do international shipping but it’s pretty pricy. And if you spot any defects you need to send back at your own cost. So I haven’t tried ordering a pair directly, only bought from Carousell when someone buys the wrong size :p

For Robinsons, go to the one at Heeran, they carry a lot more brands. I haven’t tried any of them actually. But ya, not all are gyw so check properly.

Hi guys, would like some advise.

Have size US 8 feet and am looking for a pair of casual penny loafers.

Unfortunately most penny loafers I try on are slipping off i.e. too big.

For example I bought a pair from Earnest and Collective at their smallest size 39 and it is still too big.

Anyone has any recommendations for a off the rack pair or is it recommended to go custom made? Budget isn't high since its a casual/off-work kind of shoes ~200+

Thanks

Sounds like you aren't a US 8. Might want to get a brannock fitting.

Thanks for the recommendations.

Any of these brands have outlets in SG? Preferably would like to try first before buying before getting any more ill fitting shoes..

Its weird coz my ASICS running shoes are sized US8.5 and my casual sneakers (i.e. Converse, Toms) are also at US 8 or 8.5.

But in real life it doesn't seem to equate to dress shoes US 8??

Itís common.. same as shirt or jeans mah. Some brand of jeans 33inch = 32 inch for other brands

Thus we always suggest to try it out in person

Renovateur will help you clean and condition. There’s some solvent in it so it will help spread but also remove some of your previous creams and wax.

Shoe cream will condition and give a little bit of colour. Not so much good for cleaning.
